hey bro,

yeh with the dash its realativly easy to fit.. it comes with tabs to bolt onto where the steering colum goes down into orig bolt holes and usually its screwed on left and right side of dash into metal work behind it.

there is actually an article on here somewhere of more detailed.. but its pretty easy really.

now you can cover it if you want or paint it.. its completely up to you. personal preference. both look good.

yeh there are plenty of finished photos of vans with these products fitted in the gallery.. just have a browse through "craig's" gallery.. and check out "eddys" gallery for the bonnet

dont have any pics of the overhead consol at thi stage thou.

the side door comes standard without a handle or holes in case a gull wing door is required. but looks exactly the same as a steel one.


yeh sounds like its gunna be a fair beast man. cant wait to see a few more photos..

cheers
ben

G'day

Bens prices are good, especially compared to other suppliers. I just priced a little flare kit for my Carry van. There is a little bit of change out of $1500.
The problem I have is that most of my stories end with... and that is why I am not allowed to go back there!

Hi all,

I have just bought some stuff in the last few days from Ben and found he is great to deal with. He is very helpful and knowledgeable. I have no hesitation in recommending him as a seller to anyone.
